L. LOUISE ANDRES
The saying that all good things come in small packages really holds good in
the case of Louise. Although her ambition has been at variance, her present aim
is to enter the Allentown Training School for Nurses, Do I feel a fever coming?
Who wouldn't, if Louise were to be in attendance?
GAYLE ARLENE BALMER
Who was it, in the Popularity Contest, voted the best looking girl in the class
of '37? Arlene, of course, for who of us would have a chance? With her pleasant
smile and fine sense of humor, she is the possessor of a host of friends who wish
RUTH IEANETTE BARNES
What did you lose? Here's Ieanette. "The Lost and Found Department," ready
to help you in your distress. Upon graduation Ieanette's ambition is to enter col-
lege in the fall and prepare as a teacher of art. We are sure that you will always
be able to blend your colors, Ieanette.
ORA VALERIA BARNHART
"You're going too fast, Miss Barr." Yes, this is none other than Ora calling, as
she misses a word in her shorthand dictation. Ora comes to us from the burg of
Newville and we know that when she returns to this metropolis, she will be "tops"
in the thing she undertakes.
STANLEY BURNWOOD BARNHART
"Barney" is the lad who has usually operated the school's moving picture
machine. This, however, is only one of his many accomplishments-Mr. Bishop
says he excels in Physics and Chemistry. With his cheery smile, he is certain to
win his way successfully in Iife's journey.
Tl-IELMA GISI-I BARTO
Thelma is the lass who enjoys the distinction of having faithfully served six
whole years on the School Patrol. Also she has Won for herself the reputation of
being a star pupil in Problems of Democracy. What is it going to be, Thelma, high-
way patrol-woman or national congressman?
RACHEL E. BASHORE
We shall always remember "Rae" as the able president of the Tri-I-Ii-Y and
as Anna Bell, the delightful role she played in one of the Iunior Class Plays. Her
ambition is to go into training at the General Hospital at Lancaster. We are sure,
Rae, the profession of nursing will be receiving in you another worthy member.
HARRY BECK, IR.
The class has had its chief "he-ckler" in none other than "junior" who, we
feel, has the makings of a great politician. Harry, however, aspires to medicinep
and with his skill, as demonstrated in the Rifle Team, we are confident he shall
not miss his aim.
THELMA M. BECKER
Where's all the laughing coming from? Some one says "Becker," who has been
one of the jolly members of the Commercial group, and who has already laughed
her way into an office of a department of General Motors at Baltimore. Here's con-
tinued success to you, Thelma.
BETTIE I, BERRIER
Bettie is another member of the Commercial group-a faithful and conscien-
tious one at that, No matter when you may inspect her books, you will find them
clean and up-to-date. This reputation will find her the secretarial position that she
wishes to secure upon graduation.
DOROTHY KATHRYN BISHOP
Here comes "Dot" swinging and singing. She is the slender girl we see float-
ing around with the Commercial section, always ready to enter into some fun-
making scheme. Yet we have often seen her, too, typing away with great speed,
for Dot is a good typist and will fill a position with credit some day.
PAUL H. BISHOP
"Red" was that flashy end who, for dear old Elizabethtown, made that one
touchdown this year in football. He also helped to score in baseball, and with a
rifle, he couldn't be beat. So, Paul, with all this skill what will you not be able
to do in playing the game of lifel

Bernice is not always the quiet and demure member of the class you may
think her-she can speak, and speak forcibly when occasion demands it. In other
words she has the thing that is going to assure her success in her chosen field of
work, namely that of nursing.
ALVERTA ARLENE BOOZER
"Boozer" is another of the worthy acquisitions of the Commercial Department.
Serving as Mr. Mayer's private secretary, she has done well in keeping the schoo1's
athletic material typed up-to-date, and in helping to maintain the good reputation
of this department by becoming an expert basketball player herself. Good luck,
ELIZABETH Y. BRILL
"Brilly" is one of the fair lasses who comes to us from the fair country. Besides
holding up her own in the Commercial Department, she has made quite a name
for herself in basketball. She is extremely fond of hiking, particularly in the
neighborhood of "Gretna," We wonder why!
PEARL M. BROCK
Pearl is our attractive and efficient school secretary whose business it has
been to chase the halls twice a day to collect the attendance slips. Upon gradua-
tion, she hopes to continue her secretarial duties and "keep agoin'." We hope,
Pearl, that on the way you may find a partner with whom you may share your
PAULINE E. BRYAN
A friend from back in the grades who returned last year to finish her high
school days with us. For short we call her "Pean." After graduation she also plans
to go into training as a nurse at St. Ioseph's Hospital in Lancaster. May all your
patients be pleasant ones, Pauline.
THELMA E. BURKHOLDER
Although Thelma is the quiet and unobtrusive member of our class, she is a
great favorite-always willing to lend a hand where needed. Her one ambition is
to become a nurse and we feel that she will become an efficient one. Our good
wishes go with you, Thelma.
FLORENCE M. CHARD
"Flossie" is the cheerful, little girl who made the big hit as "Hetty Cain" in
the lunior Class Play. Her pleasing manner and accommodating spirit have en-
deared her to all. As a teacher, we know, you are going to be a great success,
LUTHER DYER COBLE, IR.
"I..ut" is one who hasn't much to say but, as the saying goes, "Still water
runs deep." Usually one can find Coble and Dunkleberger with heads together
scheming some trick or planning a week-end trip. Luther is interested in aviation.
We hope he will never want for a landing place.
WILLIAM M. DUNKLEBERGER
"Bill," as the boys call him, is one of our more quiet but good natured stu-
dents. Someone has suggested that he has the making of a lawyer or a Supreme
Court ludge. At present, however, he is thinking in terms of electricity. May there
not be any short circuits, William.
ANNA MAE DUPLER
"Anna Mae" is the little girl who hails from Maytown. She came to us in our
Iunior year and brought her smile right with her. Quickly adopting our ways, she
has been able to hold her own with us. May you always, Anna Mae, be able thus
to meet Iife's changes.
CHARLES WILLIAM EBERSOLE
"Charlie" is the well known student coming to us from Bainbridge. His athletic
ability quickly won him a place in our hearts. Upon graduation he intends to enter
the Naval Academy at Annapolis and prepare for aviation. May you learn to fly
MERRILL ALLEN EBERSOLE
Merrill, who came to us from Middletown last year, is the efficient student of
our Commercial Department-in fact so efficient that he has won for himself the
title "Miss Barr's right hand man." Upon graduation, Merrill will continue his work
in the business world.
voulcl have met the eyes of anyone who had
"Too Deep" is the versatile member of the class of '37. She is a debater,
actress, elocutionist and musician. For the star part she played in "Peg O' My
Heart" she will long be remembered. "Too Deep" plans to attend Elizabethtown
College and prepare to teach. May success and good luck follow you, Mildred.
I. KENTON ESHLEMAN
"Bats" is our little man with "big stuff," always laughing and trying to con-
vert tragedy into comedy. When it comes to managing the finances of a class
play or year book, he can't be beat. We predict he will be running a successful
enterprise of his own some day.
CHARLES WALDO ESHLEMAN
"Plug" is the modest lad, but he really has reasons to be otherwise. He not
only excels in football, basketball, baseball, and swimming, but also in the field
of music, holding the 1936 state championship for saxophone playing. ln Septem-
ber, Waldo will further his education and accomplishments at college.
ROBERT HENRY FORNEY
Why, there goes "Butch" in another new carl "Butch" is the dark, handsome,
young man with the baritone voice. In the role of the butler in the Senior Play
and as King of Pirates in this year's operetta, he has scored high. Which is it
going to be, Robert, opera or the automobile business?
VERNON A. FREY
Vernon is another of our versatile lads-Mr. Seiders thinking him quite a
gifted writer when it comes to preparing papers on the evil effects of alcoholism.
Vernon, however, is more particularly interested in drafting and welding, and upon
graduation will pursue courses in that direction at Hershey.
"Peeps" we call her. Although the smallest girl in the class, she is right there
when it comes to laughing. The typing room will never be the same when she
leaves and takes her giggle with her. Evelyn plans to continue her work in the
Who is the chap that rose to sudden fame through the role he played in
"Sire de Maletroit's Door"? None other than "Gainer," the Editor-in-Chief of our
Year Book and star debater. Among his many interests is that of vocal music
which he hopes to pursue as a profession. May success be yours, Glenn.
NANCY M. GARBER
Nancy will always be remembered as the little lady of the class of '37. Al-
though reserved and unassuming, she has by her sincerity and courage of con-
viction made a lasting impression. Upon graduation she expects to take a course
in home economics and qualify as a teacher in that field.
ROBERT S. GARMAN
"Bob" is our very able cheer leader whose pep has been a contributing factor
in our school victories. With his pleasing personality and his dramatic skill he has
proved himself a valuable asset. Mechanical arts have been his primary interest
-whether it be designing or teaching, we cheer you on your way to success,
One of the boys to enter our class from Bainbridge this year was Iohn. When
he first appeared among us, someone cried out, "Don't tell me that this little fellow
is a Senior!" Yes, and a worthy one he has proved to be. So don't worry, Iohn,
about your sizeg remember Napoleon was a little man.
Mildred is one of those rare combinations of originality and fun. If she be on
a committee, success is inevitable, for whatever she undertakes, whether it be an
essay or "beating" someone in horseback riding, conquer she will. May you al-
ways be able to hold your horse, Mildred.
Who has not met Elva, another of the Commercial students, who has greeted
us many times as one of the efficient secretaries in Professor Ebersole's office?
Never ruffled-always pleasant, always accommodating. The underclassmen are
going to miss you, Elva.

VERA VIRGINIA HERCKLEROTH
"Gin" comes to us from Bainbridge. Snobbishness? No, it is not that-it's just
diffidence. Once penetrate that and you will find a "regular" girl who can give
and take. We predict for her a brilliant career, perchance that of a teacher. Good
MARIAN G. HERR
Marian is that pleasant little girl that comes to us from God's open country.
Quiet and unassuming, she has, however, made a strong place for herself among
us. Upon graduating, she will enter Elizabethtown College and pursue a secretarial
course. May success always follow you, Marian.
SARA I. HERTZLER '
Has anyone seen Kelly! Kelly is the girl bubbling over with pep, vim and
vigor. And does she get the work done! On the basketball floor she can't be
beat. Her aspirations are to become a nurse and can't you see her handling those
HARVEY S. HOFFMAN, IR.
Harvey, one of the basketball stars, is the handsome young man of the Com-
mercial Department who comes to us from Rheems. Naturally he is interested in
tractors and threshing machines and no doubt will make things hum on that farm
of his some day,
ORPHA S. HOLLIN GER
Here is one of the first honor students of the class-full of fun and ever ready
to laugh at a good joke. In her school work, however, she has been most con-
scientious. Upon graduation she intends to enter college, preparatory to teaching.
There is no doubt but what she shall make an efficient teacher.
HARRY KERMIT HORNING
Harry played the role of the crisp lawyer in the Senior Play. Regardless of
the fact that he appeared natural in that role, he intends to go into the field of
chemical engineering. He is well qualified, being a first honor student in science
and mathematics. Good luck to you, Harry.
N. MARLIN HUMMER
"Hummer" is the chap from beyond the borough limits. His wavy hair, fair
complexion, and broad smile are only a few of his outstanding characteristics.
He aims high, for he is considering aviation as a career. Tails up in everything
you do, friend Hummer.
MILTON M. HUNCHBERGER
"Wimpy" is the husky lad from Ephrata, who joined our class in our freshman
year. His skill in athletics has made him an outstanding member. His hobby is
fishing, but his real line is Commercial work in which he has already distinguished
Who does not know our '!Bettie"? She is that little girl of French extraction
whose great love of fun has often bubbled over into mischief. Nevertheless her
ability to sing and act, to say nothing of her skill in athletics, has placed her high
in the estimation of her classmates. Bonne chance, toujours! Bettie.
IOHN HOWARD KRAYBILL
Rash, Crash! Boom, Bang!!
No, it's not one of our new school yells-the brakes on Iohnnie's Model T
merely slipped, Since Iohnnie's one ambition is to become an efficient mechanic,
we hope he will make a special study of brakes. Lots of luck to you, Iohn.
HELEN RUTH LARSON
This is our Helen who greatly surprised us with her gale of song in the oper-
etta, "The Pirates of Penzance," Although Helen is particularly interested in the
work of the commercial field, we are now wondering what it will be, grand opera
HAROLD R. LEHMAN
In Harold we greet another capable student or should we say, "The Major-
General" as we met him in the operetta? In either case the title but partly does
him credit-debating and dramatics and tennis being among his other accom-
plishments. At college, we are sure, Harold will continue his good work.

MELVA M. LEHMAN
Melva is the member of the class whom we shall always remember as rush-
ing into the home room at the last minute and exclaiming, "I just made it." This
lass's ambition is to become an interpretative dancer and singer. We hope, Melva,
that in this or any other undertaking, you may always be able to say, "I have
BESSIE E. LICHTY
Bessie is one of the few who started with the class in the first grade. Al-
though never loud and talkative, she has proved a valuable asset to the class in
serving on committees and in giving help where needed. Bessie will continue her
work in the commercial field.
HELEN LOUISE MCCLURG
Quiet but dependable, not a stone left unturned, characterizes our "Lou." Her
charming disposition and pleasing smile won many friends for her in high school
days. Helen is going to be a technician but not the kind that will get her test
RUTH M. MCCORKEL
Ruth, the quietest girl in the Commercial Section, has proved her ability as
a competent bookkeeping student. Her ambition is to pursue a business career.
Her spirit of kindliness and her ladylike deportment are bound to launch her on
the seas of success and happiness.
PAULINE GERTRUDE MCMILLIAN
Pauline is the quiet and studious young lady who comes to us from Bain-
bridge. Although she has been with us but a year, her gracious manner has won
for her many friends in Elizabethtown High. Upon graduating she will continue her
preparations for life by taking a course in stenography.
DORIS A. WISE MECKLEY
"Do" is not always smiling-she also has her more serious side. At school
she has distinguished herself by her musical talent, not only in playing a guitar
but in singing prominent parts in chorus work. She plans, however, to go into the
field of dental hygiene where, we are certain, success awaits her,
MILDRED MAY MYERS
"Millie," another faithful member of the School Patrol, graduates from the Com-
mercial Department. Her ambition is to further her training as a stenographer at
Central Pennsylvania Business School. With her ready smile and pleasing manner,
she is bound to make her mark in the business world.
MILDRED E. PARRETT
"Mimi" is the maid of the Commercial Department that has carried away quite
a few honors through her acting and singing ability. Who of you will forget her
impersonation of "Aunt Allie" in the class play? In the fall, Mildred plans to enter
Elizabethtown College and qualify as a commercial teacher.
DOROTHY MAE PHILLIPS
"Dot," another member of the Commercial Department, came to us from East
Berlin, Pennsylvania, and since that time has proved herself a valuable asset to
the class. Upon graduation, she plans to further her secretarial training at a
business college. Good luck to you, Dorothy.
ORLO E. PROCTOR, IR.
Do you know the fellow who always lingered every evening after school at
the locker of a certain Iunior lass? Well, that is "Proc," our class president who
distinguished himself during his school career by becoming a qualified Eagle
Scout. Orlo believes in the slogan, "Be Prepared."
IOHN CLEMENT PUGH
Iohn is the "platinum blonde" who came to us from the Masonic Homes.
Through his fine bit of acting in the Iunior Class Play, he won his way into the
hearts of all. His main interest, however, lies in the industrial field and upon
graduation he will settle into a position at Pittsburgh.
Daniel is the member of the class that has the appearance of a quiet fellow,
but when you learn to know him, you will change your mind. With his strong
sense of humor, he proves himself to be the life of the crowd. Daniel hails from
Newville and in days to come, we hope will bring credit to that metropolis.

year's operetta. In the fall, Sarah will join the "White Parade" where, there is no
doubt, she will very quickly be found in the foremost ranks of the nursing pro-
ELIZABETH ANNETTA ROBINSON
"Sis" is the member of the class whose keen sense of humor and good-natured
friendliness have won her a high place in our esteem. In September she plans
to go into training as a nurse in the Bryn Mawr Hospital. We wish you success,
EDNA C. RUTHERFORD
Edna is another of the lasses from Bainbridge. By her excellent scholarship
she very quickly made an enviable place among us. ln assembly she very ably
presided by the piano and in the Senior Class Play displayed unusual dramatic
ability. At Lebanon Valley College, we know she will continue to win laurels.
ALTA KATHRYN SHAN K
Alta is one of the class members by whose face you cannot always tell what
she is thinking. "Still water runs deep," goes the saying. However, Alta is think-
ing in terms of St. loseph's Hospital, and plans to enter there in September.
THEODORE M. SHECKART
"Ted" is the lad from Bainbridge who is always seen with his head buried
in a newspaper, reading the doings at Washington. With his keen mind, as dis-
played in the Mathematics Club, we shall not be surprised to hear some day of
Representative Sheckart proposing a new law. Luck to you, Theodore.
Myrle hails from-Rheems and through her influence, Sipling's Garage fur-
nished many an old car for the high school gang. ln order to keep the automobile
business in the family, Myrle will go to Central Pennsylvania Business College
and there take a secretarial course. Good luck, Myrle.
HENRY P. SNAVELY
Behold our Henry! A man of individuality and natural wit! Who of us will
ever forget his book report in English Class on Rikki-Tikki-Tavi? But 'Henry has his
serious side-upon graduating he hopes to be able to study civil engineering.
The members of the class hope that this ambition of his may be realized.
HARRY R. SNYDER
Harry is the lad from Newville who has little to say. But in examination time
we have noticed that, like the wise old owl, he has heard and therefore can
speak. May you always follow this course, Harry, for who knows but that, like
Calvin Coolidge, you too may be sitting in the White House some day.
PAUL L. SNYDER
Paul is one of the intellectuals of the class of '37. His sincerity and earnest-
ness of purpose have endeared him to both teachers and pupils alike. Paul ex-
pects to continue his studies at Grantham College where, we are sure, he will
continue to do himself and Alma Mater credit.
WOODROW W. T. SONNON
Who has seen the efficient manager of our basketball team? Oh, there he is,
seeing to it that all the rules of the game are being observed. Woodrow is a lover
of the out-of-doors, and, pursuing this interest, will begin a course in forestry at
State College in the fall.
IOHN HOWARD SPEIDEL
"Iohnnie" is another of our first honor students. He has distinguished himself
not only through his excellent scholarship but also through his musical ability.
What would we have done for a tenor in this year's operetta if it had not been
for Iohnl In September, he will attend Elizabethtown College and prepare for a
CHARLEEN HELEN SWEIGART
Charleen is a lass who comes to us from Newville. For three years she starred
in the corridors as a school patrolman. She is especially interested in commercial
work, and upon graduation, will continue her training in that field. The class
wishes you Godspeed, Charleen.
Volk through the empty corridors and rooms?
PHYLLIS R. THOMPSON
"Tommy" is one of our honor students from "The Homes." With her winning
personality, she has won her way into the hearts of schoolmates, the boys no:
excepted. To further her education, she will go into training as a teacher of French
Bonne chance, Phyllis.
BESSIE M. TURNER
Forward, March! Bessie is drilling one of her future "gym" classes. And no
one is better qualified for this than she, because of her athletic ability. Swim-
ming, tennis, and basketball are a few of her specialties. ln everything you do
Bessie, the best wishes of the class of '37 are with you.
wp. NAOMI R. WAGNER
We often wondered what the cause of the school fire at Bainbridge was, but
after learning to know "Wagner" we are convinced the janitor was just trying to
heat up the building. We hope she has found plenty of warmth among us, and
that she will always find the world a comfortable place in which to live.
FRANK E. WEAVER
Silent and shy is Frank, nevertheless, he has gained entrance into the hearts
of his fellow students. Everywhere, but especially in mathematics, he has proved
that hard work brings results. Although chiefly interested in farming, he may take
a course in business and thus keep up the reputation of the family.
In our sophomore year, an accident occurred in which lane was fatally in-
jured, Hers was a cheerful and happy nature. Tap dancing, swimming, and
tennis were only a few of her varied accomplishments. All that the class of '37
can say is: "We wish she were here to be graduated with us."
Roger's death occurred in the early part of our senior year. Were he still
here, we know he would want us to say that his chief interest was sports. Roger
was very quiet and unobtrusive, always willing to help someone, We want to
remember him as a good fellow and friend.
Empty of people, undoubtedly, but certainly
illed with memories. Ah, yes! "Memories" was

ilorary. And the members of the meeting were
none other than the ghosts of the Sophomore, Iunior and Senior Years
of the class of '37.
The discussion was quite a heated one, each ghost claiming for
its own the honor of having been the best year the class had spent in
E. H. S.
"You must admit," began the Sophomore ghost, "that l had the
most difficult task. It was I who introduced them to the fact that they
were now in Senior High School. How well I remember every one of
them, ninety ambitious, energetic, young fifteen-year-olds!" . . . and,
unknowingly, he lost himself in memories of the 1934-35 term.
"How grown-up these Sophomores felt at their first class meet-
ing!" the l934-35 ghost continued. "They elected Harold Lehman as
their president, Orlo Proctor, Ir., vice president, Robert Garman, treas-
urer, and Rachel Bashore, secretary.
"Soon the school as a Whole got into full swing. First call for foot-
ball practice! And how those Sophomores ran to the athletic field!
Although being mere children, they proved invaluable in holding
down the bench. Soon after football season was over, came an event
of great importance to the boys-they were initiated into the Hi-Y
Club. How embarrassed they were to go to school for a whole week
wearing overalls, no ties, and carrying hammers! A few Weeks later
the girls were admitted to the Tri-I-Ii-Y. Their initiation was quite con-
spicuous, for they were made to wear 'sandwich signs' and carry
kettles to school.
"May 12, 1935, was a day never to be forgotten. It was on that
day that one of the most popular girls in the class, lane Gochnauer,
was fatally injured in an accident. No one realized how deeply the
tragedy was felt by her classmates, and it was with heavy hearts they
continued Without her.
"Before the end of the term I had another task to lay before them,
-levying class dues. However, it didn't seem to have much effect on
them, and on their last day as Sophomores they left E. H. S., a group
of happy young boys and girls, far wiser and more experienced than
they had been on the first day of the term."
"You did a very good job of breaking them in," the Iunior ghost
started, "but certainly you did not give them the thrills and good times
they had in my year. That year their officers were: Orlo Proctor, Harry
Horning, Robert Garman, and Rachel Bashore, Soon after their organ-
ization, they chose as their class colors cherry red and white. Early in
November they held a class meeting and selected their class jewelry.
"November twenty-sixth was undoubtedly the most important day
of the year. After weeks of preparation under the guidance of their
faithful friend and advisor, Mr. Moorehouse, they presented their
Iunior Entertainment-two one-act plays and a minuet. The entertain-
ment proved a great success!-the talk of the school and town for
"Early in March the student body became very much interested in
the operetta, 'H. M. S. Pinaforel' Although only one Iunior was assigned
a solo part, a great many of them were in the chorus, and were most
faithful in coming to rehearsals and doing everything they could to
make the operetta a success. The 'Pinafore' was presented to capacity
house audiences April 18th and 19th.
"During football and basketball seasons, the Iuniors Worked hard,
selling candy and 'hot dogs,' to make money so that they could give
the Seniors a farewell banquet. May fifteenth was set as the date, and
the 'S. S. Grads' sailed forth with a carefree crew and a large group of
light-hearted passengers. Together the Seniors cmd juniors spent a
most enjoyable evening,
"Then came Commencement for the 1936 class and of course it
brought to the Class of '37 the realization that they were now Seniors."
Seeing that his chance had come, the Senior ghost immediately
broke in on the discussion.
"And what a year their last one in E. H. S. was! They were
seventy-nine strong when the term began, and at their first class meet-
ing the following officers were elected: Orlo Proctor, Ir., presidentg
Robert Garman, vice president, Howard Speidel, treasurerg and Louise
"The term had hardly begun when misfortune dealt them a heavy
blow. A member of the class from the very beginning of their school
days, Roger Bricker, departed this life October l6, 1936. Again face to
face with the fact that life will bring its sorrows, they realized more
keenly that they had to work together and carry on,
"Football season passed, and soon basketball was well on its
way. Early in the New Year, the Class of '37 chose as their dramatic
production, 'Peg O' My Heart,' by I. Hartley Manners. Hour after hour,
night after night, week after week was spent in preparing the play,
the seemingly insignificant parts getting as much attention as the
prominent ones. February Twenty-fifth and Twenty-sixth were the
nights of the performance. How thrilled those Seniors were when mem-
bers of the audience acclaimed it one of the best ever produced in
Elizabethtown! But with all their joy came the realization that 'Peg
O' My Heart' was the last play the Class of '37 would give on the
stage of E. H. S.
"Immediately afterwards, the High School Chorus began work on
its second Gilbert and Sullivan opera 'The Pirates of Penzance,' one
of the most famous by these composers. All the solo parts but one were
sung by members of the Senior Class, and although the opera was
presented under quite adverse circumstances, the chorus cooperated
splendidly, and the opera was a success.
"Two weeks later came the second junior-Senior Banquet for the
Class of '37, but this time the situation was quite reversed. Instead of
working hard to plan an enjoyable evening, they had only to enjoy
themselves, with the Class of '38 as their hosts. What a sight met their
eyes when they entered the banquet hall! They found themselves in
the midst of a beautiful garden, having the atmosphere of a fairy land!
"Class Day exercises were held Tuesday, june first. The program
consisted of an original Class Day Play entitled, 'ln the Court of Alma
Mater' ln the course of this play, Alma Mater requested the Seniors
to prove that they had fulfilled the requirements necessary for gradua-
lion. Having proved themselves worthy of their diplomas, the Seniors
were escorted from the hall by the Iunior Class.
"And now they are gonep they have achieved their goal. . .
Listen!! What's that? Steps in the hall?"
"Who could it be?" broke in the junior ghost.
"We must be gone," quivered the ghost of the Sophomore year.
With a weird gesture they vanished into thin air, and when the
janitor, whose steps they had heard, looked into the library, he saw
everything exactly as it had been the day before.
The Class of l937 was gone from Elizabethtown High School.

TH its purpose in mind, namely, clean living, clean speech, clean athletics, and clean
scholarship, the Hi-Y Club began another year's work. The newly elected members were
formally initiated and properly instructed in the ways of the organization. Throughout all
the discussions, parliamentary procedure was followed.
In addition to the work of the regular meetings, the Hi-Y Club participated in various
social activities. Together with the Tri-Hi'Y, it helped to sponsor the Senior High School
Hallowc'en Party which proved to be a social success. With the beneflccnt help of the Rotary
Vluh, it also helped to sponsor the Annual Father and Son Banquet.. On this occasion the
fathers had an opportunity to join in fellowship with their sons and become better acquainted
with the work that the Hi-Y Club is trying to accomplish.

S in the case of the Hi-Y, so with the Tri-Hi-Y. its purpose is to create, maintain, and ex-
tend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character. That the
community might become better informed, representatives visited the various churches and,
in five minute talks, laid before the people the purpose and platform of the organization.
Literary programs were presented at the regular meetings. Among the guest speakers was
Mrs. Leila M. Ford, State Girls' Secretary, who gave an inspirational talk. In order to raise
funds, moving picture entertainments were sponsored from time to time.
The club also engaged in various social activities. With the aid of the members of the
HifY, the Tri-Hi-Y sponsored the Senior High School Hallowe'en Party. Later another social
event was an evening spent as the guests of the Hi-Y and Tri-Hi-Y Clubs at Hershey. But the
big event of the year was the Mother and Daughter Banquet, held the Friday evening before
Mother-'s Day. Miss Agnes Ferriter, Policewoman of the city of Lancaster, was the speaker.

HE Patrol is composed of boys and girls from the classes of the Junior and Senior High
Schools. There are two squads, the indoor and the outdoor. Each squad is composed of a
captain, three lieutenants, and a patrolman. Once a week, under the supervision of Mr.
Hamilton, they meet to make their reports and to receive instructions.
It is the duty of the Patrol to see to it that proper conduct is observed in and about the
school: that students do not loiter or congregate in and about the building: and that no waste
material is thrown in and about the building. Students disobeying these rules are brought be-
fore the Court of the Patrol where they are tried. Patrolmen who fail to do their duty are also
brought before this same court.
In conjunction with the Student Council. the Patrol has striven to raise the morale of the
school and to quicken the sense of civic duty in the student body. Whether or not the Patrol
has been a success in its endeavors still remains to be seen.
HE play chosen by the Senior Flass was "Peg O' My Heart" by J. Hartley Manners. Titt-
scene opens with Peg, a poor Irish girl from New York, arriving at the home of Mrs.
Chichester, an aristocratic aunt in England. Mrs. Cliiche-ster's brother had willed a sum of
money to Peg with the stipulation that she be reared by Mrs. Chichester. The whole Chi-
chester family loathe the idea: consequently Peg, with her quaint ways, finds herself in this new
and hostile environment like a duck out of water. But gradually she wins her way into their
hearts: first, by refusing to marry Alaric, the son, who had proposed only to please his mother
and then, by helping Ethel, the daughter, to come to her better self just when she was about
to Fllll away with Christian Brent, a suave gentleman who already was married. Finally Jerry.
a titled friend of the Chichesters, comes forward, declares his love for Peg, and is accepted.
In presenting the play, the cast, under the direction of Miss Nisley, played their roles ex-
ceptionally well and received tlte plaudits of overflowing houses on two different nights.
Cast: Mrs. Chiclxester, Edna Rutherford: Alaric tMrs, Chichestr-r's sont, Harold Lehman:
Ethel tMrs. Chiehr-ster's daughterl, Bettie Keene: Christian Brent. Glenn C-ainerg Peg, Mildred
Enterline: Montgomery Hawkes. Harry Horningg Jerry, Robert Gorman: Jarvis, Robert Forney:
Bennett, Mildred Parrett: Business Manager, Howard Speidel.
HE Junior Entertainment was given Tuesday Evening, November 26. 1935 and. under the
able direction of Mr. Moorehonse, proved to be the outstanding activity of the class for that
The program opened with "The Dinner Bell," a one-act play by Josephine Bacon. The
moral, namely, you can't take a city girl and very well make a farmer's wife out of her, was
well portrayed by the good acting of Fannie Snyder, Mildred Parrett. Florence Chard, Robert
Garman, Rachel Bashore, Bernice Blottenbergcr, Richard Meckley, and Harry Horning.
The second one-act play, which followed, was "The Sire de Maletroit's Door," a play based
on Robert Louis Stevenson's short story by the same name. Glenn Gainer very ably took the
part of the Sire de Maletroitc Bettie Keene, of Blanch de Maletroit: John Pugh, of Dennis de
Beaulieu: and Vernon Frey, of the Chaplain.
The novelty feature between the two plays was a mittuet, while a saxophone solo by Waldo
Eshleman and a girls' trio, consisting of Myrle Sipling, Doris Meeklcy, and Fannie Snyder, fur-
nished the musical touches.
HE Senior Fhorus this year presented another Gilbert and Sullivan Operctta. namely, "Thr-
Pirates of Penzance." The performance was under the direction of Miss Belscr, Supervisor
of Music, and was a grand success.
The flrst act was laid in a cove overlooking the ocean. Frederic, who had been apprenticed
to the pirates in his boyhood, had now reached the age of twenty-one and he was now going to
be set, free. Ruth, his childhood nurse, who was responsible for his apprenticeship, playing upon
his ignorance of women. tried to persuade him to marry her. But alas! at the critical moment
a brig of beautiful maidens appeared on the scene and Mabel, the daughter of the Major-General,
and Frederic immediately fell in love.
Knowing that pirates are kind to orphans, the Major-General told thc pirates that he was
an orphan and thus effected an escape, Frederic going with him. But Rtith and the Pirate King
devised a plan by which Frederic would be returned. Since Frederic had been born in a Leap
Year, instead of being twenty-one, they said, he could be but flve and a fourth years old: there-
fore he was still bound to the pirates. Although he shrank from the idea of having to leave
Mabcl, Frederick sense of duty demanded that he retum. In the end, however, the pirates and
the men of thc Major-General come together, and Frederic and Mabel are thus reunited.
Cast: Richard, a pirate chief, Robert Forney: Samuel, his lieutenant, Henry M. Garber:
Frederic, a pirate apprentice, Howard Speidel: Major-General Stanley, of the British Army,
Harold Lehman: Edward, a sergeant of police, Robert Garman: Mabel, General Stanley's young-
est daughter, Bettie Keene: Kate, Edith and Isabel, General Stanley's daughters, Mildred Parrett,
Helen Larson and Mildred Enterline: Ruth, a piratical "maid-of-all-work," Sarah ltensel: Accom-
panist, Helett Gruber Booth.
N the second year of its history, the Student Council has endeavored to live up to its purpose
by accomplishing several worthwhile projects. Through a special committee, a School Hand-
hook was compiled and printed. This book should prove of inestimable value to all students
--particularly to' those coming to us from outside districts-in becoming better acquainted with
the rules and customs of the school.
The Council has also been instrumental in bringing to our assembly exercises, speakers
such as Mr. Razor Fenton, ex-Convict: Mr. Jacques D'Albert, a member of the Byrd Expedition:
Mr. Shober Barr, Athletic Coach of Franklin-Marshall College: and Capt. Kilroy Harris, Traveler
and Lecturer. Also through its efforts, the school was highly entertained one afternoon by a
musical program rendered by the Pennsylvania P. W. A. Orchestra.
It is gratifying to note that our Stundcnt Council has met with outside recogllitlon. When
the York 'High School announced a state convention of student councils, our representatives
were appointed on a committee to draft a state constitution and by-laws.

NDER the direction of Miss Barr, the Head of the Commercial Department, the Senior
Commercial Society was reorganized and the work of another year in its history begun
by placing greater emphasis on its aimsg namely, to promote interest in work pertaining to
commercial and business activities: to develop businesslike attitudes: to become familiar with
modern, progressive business methods, and to furnish a means of making contact with similar
clubs of other schools.
In October, the members motored to Lancaster and made an observation tour through the
Armstrong Cork Plant. This was followed by a visit to Ream's Book Store. where a represen-
tative of the L. C. Smith Typewriter Company gave a demonstration of office machines. Later
in the month, the Society visited the Local Telephone Exchange to study the operation of the
switchboard and the problems pertaining to improved methods of telephoning.
In accordance with the custom of former years, all members entered the National Short-
hand Contest, sponsored by the Gregg Publishing Company of New York City and, through their
efficiency, three of our number were awarded with pins.

HE Library Staff is not a new organization in the school. Feeling its need, Miss Nislcy
effected its organization several years ago. Its purpose is to assist the librarian in her work
and to give valuable experience to those students who are planning to specialize in this
The members of thc staff are chosen from the classes of the Senior High School and each
given his or her speciilc duty to perform, such as stamping and tiling books, lettering and
labeling books, llling away library material, etc. In addition to this work, each member takes a
turn at serving at the desk and attending to the "lost and found" department which was taken
over by the staff this year,
Through it.s excellent service, the staff has won a place for itself among the other major
organizations of the school and the Year Book is glad to give it this recognition.
NDER the direction of Miss Nisley, the French Club was organized as a senior class project.
Its purpose is to promote a keeuer interest in the study of the French latigtiage. To acquire
a greater speaking ability. at all its meetings, all business transactions. all discussions, all
literary pursuits are conducted in French.
As a special feature, each member of the Club was given the name of a correspondent in
France and the letters he received from this correspondent in exchange for the letters he had
written, he brought to the Club and read.
An outstanding event of the Club during its first year was an assembly program. Short
plays and songs were given in French. In order that those who knew no French might know
what it was all about. each number on the program was repeated or explained in English. The
guest speaker was Mlle. Sonia de Suzor, a French exchange student at Dickinson College, Car-
lisle. After her delightful address, she answered the questions the students were privilctled to
ask. The program proved to be both enjoyable and instructive.

ing a greater interest in mathematics. The meetings of each club are conducted in accord-
ance to parliamentary procedure.
At a joint meeting, Dr. Hartzler, Instructor of Mathematics at Elizabethtown College. dis-
cussed the relationship of high school and college mathematics. At another joint meeting the
clubs sponsored a high school assembly program in which individual members endeavored to
demonstrate that mathematics is not always the dry subicet that it has the name for being.

HE 1936-37 question for debate was, Resolved: That all electric utilities should be governs
mentally owned and operated. Under the direction of Mr. Blouch, assisted by Mr. Grosli,
our teams were organized and met the various schools of the Lancaster-Dauphin County
Debating League. After having won the championship cup for three consecutive years, our
teams yielded this honor to another school this ycar.
Undaunted, our teams entered the Pennsylvania Music and Forensic League Contest at
Lititz and came away victorious. This qualified them for the district contest held at Hanover.
It was in this contest that a slight controversy arose over an error, committed by the opposing-
team. In spite of the error, the decision was rendered against Elizabethtown, which meant that
our teams could not represent the district in the state finals at Altoona. However, the debaters
received the decision with a smile, but became all thc more determined that the school should
win in another year.

ln years to come
will youth's ideals be lost:
will our faces become old and sour
and our voices rasping and nagging:
Will the corners of our mouths sagging,
sneer at the petty follies of youth?-
let us die.
We have been told
that the World is hard:
and that hard Work causes poetry to be forgotten
that an aching back dulls intelligence:
that life is more solemn than a priests chant:
that complete satisfaction lies in mediocrity:-
let us die.
ln years to come
will youth's ideals remain:
will our faces, When old, be cheerful:
and our backs, tho bent, not dull our minds,
will We love the poetry and dreams of youth:
will life, tho sad at times, be sweet?-
let us live.
A Glenn. Gainer.
